Creamy Pumpkin Seed Alfredo with Kale and Sweet Peas [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan



Cook Time



  • 1/4 cup raw, hulled pumpkin seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 shallot, peeled and quartered (can also use onion about 1/4 cup)
  • 3/4 cup non dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 bunch of kale (3-4 leaves, stems removes, chopped)
  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas
  • 1/2 lb pasta of choice


  1.  Bring water to boil for pasta and cook as you normally would. In the last 1-2 minutes of cooking, add chopped kale and peas. Drain and return to pot.
  2. While pasta is cooking, place all ingredients for Alfredo sauce, pumpkin seeds through black pepper into a blender (the higher speed the better), and blend until completely creamy. For a standard, non-high speed blender, this may take 1-2 minutes. Scrape down the sides as needed.
  3. Pour contents of blender into a small saucepan and cook over low hear, stirring constantly, until sauce begins to thicken, about 3-4 minutes. Season to taste.
  4. Pour Alfredo sauce over pasta and veggies, stir well, and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!

This is amazing! I have to say I was skeptical at first. I did make two batches of sauce for the pasta though. Yummy!!!
